Dogs

Joyce|R165

Joyce-young female dalmationFemale, Young, Large

I am surprised that we are even putting beautiful Joyce on this site. When she arrived with her sister, Jazzy, I was sure they would both leave immediately. Sadly this is not the case for Joyce, so let’s hope that a bit of extra publicity will give her the boost she needs. Bought as a puppy from a breeder, Joyce is a purebred dalmatian who was born in 2014. If you know the breed, you will know how much dalmatians hate being confined, and we would like to find a home for Joyce as soon as possible. She was born in June 2014 and although she is fine with children (having spent her whole life with 4) is not good with other dogs or cats.

Tis|R194

Tis old male shepherd crossMale, Mature, Medium

Poor Tis. Due to his owner’s illness, this lovely elderly spaniel is at the SPA. We would really like him to find a home where he can spend his twilight years. Tis was born in May 2005, and it horrible to see a dog of his age in a kennel. Tis is just fabulous on the lead, and although he is happy to go as far as you like, he is also content to take a 5 minutes break where he just sits and looks round happily at the world. Tis is good with other dogs and children but not with cats. He is very friendly and affectionate and seems to be the perfect dog, other than being quite overweight. Please open your home to this lovely old gentleman. As a senior dog, his adoption fee is just €80, for which he is castrated, vaccinated and identified.

Paddington|R185

Paddington male German shepherdMale, Young, Large


Paddington is another dog who has been brought back to the SPA. This time it is because he does not like being left alone when his owner goes to work, and cries. Rather than solve this problem (perhaps by leaving him with a Kong or similar toy), she decided that he would feel less lonely at the SPA, where of course he is alone almost all the time. Paddington is a young German shepherd/chow chow cross who was born in January 2015. He is fine on the lead but as yet we have not been able to mix him with other dogs.

Whiskey|R184

Whiskey male labrador crossMale, Young, Medium


It is a shame to see Whiskey back at the SPA, as when a dog is adopted we don’t really want to see them again, apart from in happy photographs or on visits to say hello. On the face of it, Whiskey seems to be the perfect dog, and in fact his owners thought so, until they moved close to a school and found out that Whiskey does not like children. They have none of their own, so this had never been a problem. But passing kids kept putting their hands through the gate, and Whiskey made his displeasure at this invasion more than clear. By then, of course, it was too late, so it was back to the SPA for Whiskey. He looks like a very small (15kg) black labrador He was born in October 2010, and we are told that he is fine with cats, he does not chew and does not wander off. And we know for certain that he HATES the SPA, because he cries pitifully all the time. He misses his family, and would love to be part of yours.

Rex|R169

rex male brittany spanielMale, Young, Medium

Rex was brought in by his owner as he felt he was too old to look after his dog properly. However Rex is in no way a difficult dog and although he would probably like more exercise than he was getting, he seems very happy with whatever life brings him. Rex is a seven year old brittany spaniel (date of birth April 2010) who has fabulous body language and who is wonderful with other dogs. He is not a “runner”, and like other dogs of his breed, is a great “all rounder”. Brittanies are very loving family pets as well as often being used for hunting. Rex would like a new family with a garden and maybe another dog to play with too.

Badou|R168

Badou male podenco crossMale, Young, Medium

Some of you may remember Badou. He arrived with a badly injured front leg and spent a long time recuperating at the SPA before being adopted. During this time we found him to be a wonderful sociable dog and his adopter found the same. His only “fault” was his fear of cars (understandable bearing in mind that he had been run over by one, and was found struggling to escape the other vehicles along the road). His adopter did not feel able to deal with this issue, and so Badou is back at the SPA. He is a young podenco cross who was born in January 2016. A fabulous dog who is great with children and dogs of both sexes but not with cats!

Oscar|R167

Oscar male shepherd crossMale, Young, Large

Oscar’s owner was unable to manage this fairly large strong dog as well as her other animals, so Oscar is at the SPA looking for a new home. He is a shepherd cross with a small griffon-like beard who was born in February 2016. Oscar is good with other dogs but has a tendency to be a bit dominant

Lasko|R161

Lasko young male jack russell crossMale, Young, Small


Lasko is a jack russell cross who was brought to the SPA by a concerned neighbour who saw this dog was tied up a lot. In fact his owners had tried to find him a new home, (free via the internet) and this had not worked out, with the owners just leaving their new dog tied up alone. Lasko is a great lad, fine with dogs of both sexes and not interested in escaping to go wandering. If you are looking for a small lively companion, Lasko could be the boy for you. He was born in April 2015, and is ready for his new home!

Roosevelt|R155

Roosevelt mature shepherd crossMale, Mature, Small


Roosevelt was very lucky to come to the SPA. His elderly owner sadly died while out shopping, but luckily someone was certain that he had seen the gentleman with a dog on several occasions. The police broke into the apartment and there was Roosevelt, waiting for his master. Roosevelt is not as old as one might think, however neglect has aged him prematurely. He is quite nervous at the moment and just getting used to life at the SPA, however we are hoping to find him an adopter or long term foster family soon.

Pogo|R154

PogoMale, Young, Small


Pogo is back at the SPA following another failed adoption. I do wish people would reflect a bit more before adopting a dog. This time it was a case of the husband not discussing the adoption with his wife, and so although initially all was well, as soon as the first “problem” cropped up, the wife put her foot down and Pogo was dumped again. The “problem” was that Pogo tried to escape from the garden, meaning that he is “only good for hunting”. No, not true, he just didn’t like being left alone. So what we know is that Pogo was born in May 2015. He is a black and grey brittany spaniel who is a bit nervous around young children (but fine with older ones), he is fine with other dogs and cats. And his next home simply MUST be his last.
